Did you do a search on Military.com? I just did a quick look on their site and they have some info. I did a search for spouse business loan and it came up with a bunch of stuff.

There is also MilSpouse.org. I've never gone to that site before today. I did a search for business loan and came up with lots of stuff. One was the following:
<h3>Patriot Express Pilot Loan Initiative</h3>

"The U.S.
Small Business Administration has announced the SBA's Patriot Express
Pilot Loan Initiative for veterans and members of the military
community wanting to establish or expand small businesses."
